Unlike a dirt road in the Old West with nothing but tumbleweeds drifting through the dust, there’s plenty to see on West Hunt’s Early Access roadmap!
Today, Snail Games and Wandering Wizard are unveiling their plans for the root’n-est toot’n-est social deduction game this side of the Mississippi! In the lead-up to the game’s full launch, West Hunt will see tons of new cosmetics — emotes, skins, and farm-friendly pets — new Western-themed maps, balance tweaks, and gameplay additions, including new Outlaw distraction tools and the brand-new Assassins mode!
West Hunt is set in a small but bustling village in the Old West, filled with kind-hearted folks from all walks of life. But among them hides a wolf in sheep’s clothing, stirring up trouble right under their noses: the Outlaw! Lucky for this one-horse town there’s a Sheriff ‘round these parts, with a loaded six-shooter at their hip. After players receive their role, the deadly game of cat-and-mouse begins!
Sheriffs and Outlaws face off in deadly matches that reward stealth and good detective skills. As the Outlaw, players are tasked with completing all their assigned missions before time runs out; bribing the Barman, poisoning the water supply, praying for forgiveness, and other staple Outlaw activities. Meanwhile, as the Sheriff, players must carefully observe the behavior of the villagers in town to deduce the identity of the Outlaw and kill them within the time limit.
